Rainier Beach (Washington) four-star cornerback Caleb Presley is staying home.

On Wednesday, the 6-foot, 180-pound All-American Bowl selection flipped his commitment from the Oregon Ducks to the Washington Huskies:

Presley is rated the nation's No. 166 overall prospect, No. 19 cornerback and No. 1 player in the state of Washington.

The commitment carried added significance for the Huskies, as they hadn't yet registered a commitment from a top-hight player in the home state. 

Here's what 247Sports had to say about Presley as a prospect:

"Presley is the top prospect in the Pacific Northwest in the 2023 class and an All-American Bowl selection at cornerback. Presley is a playmaker with the ball in his hands- we've seen it plenty of times before, though in the game we went to, he wasn't targeted nearly as much as he could have been. He's got optimal size and lengthy for the position and could still add some more weight without sacrificing his speed and quickness. With Presley, he does a great job diagnosing plays and shows tremendous coverage awareness and instincts, with the ability to break on the ball and close to break up passes. Presley is plenty physical, he wants to lay the big hit, but he's also a pretty sure tackler that consistently ends plays." 

In truth, Presley's decision was far from a surprise.

The talented defensive back took a late visit to the local school and hosted Washington for an in-home visit.

Following those trips, Presley made it clear he had a choice to make between Oregon and Washington. 

Washington's 2023 recruiting class jumps from No. 31 to No. 20 nationally with the addition of Presley, leapfrogging over a group of tightly-bunched teams that includes Louisville, Nebraska, Florida State and Utah.
